Lawrence Hague is a minor character in the Wild Cards anthology. Initially mentioned as an ace who vanished under mysterious circumstances, he was later revealed to have become the director of SCARE.

History Edit

During the early 1950's, Lawrence was a stockbroker before his ace saw him brought in front of Senator McCarthy at his ace hearings. Lawrence was given the choice of facing jail or joining SCARE. He was the first ace to join SCARE and one of two publicly acknowledged in joining the government's service during those early years. By 1960, in the Eisenhower administration, he had become the director of SCARE and was a close advisor to the president during the Cold War. When Franciszek Majewski appeared in the Oval Office, Lawrence immediately discerned that Frank had deduced what project AQUATONE and RAMPART was. Soon after Hague had confirmed that Frank was telling the truth, Frank was inducted into SCARE. Lawrence briefed him on everything RAMPART entailed and prepared him on his mission to rescue ace asset Francis Gary Powers from the Soviets.
